Some of my most favorite memories took place on a Saturday a year ago… I started my day with a Zumba Christmas dance party with my favorite instructors, Lisa, Rebecca, and Nicole. These ladies have seen me throughout my dance/instructor journey and have helped me learn and grow so much through dance and fitness.
After the dance party I rushed over to get my make-up done. A special occasion calls for pulling out all the stops and that meant looking my very best. I got to experiment with long lashes and bold, multi-chromatic make-up. After make-up I went to get my hair done. I love how my friend Yvonne ALWAYS has my back. She has been helping me look beautiful for the past 4 years now.
I grabbed a coffee and rushed home to begin my “princess preparation.” Every girl deserves to get all dressed up and feel like a princess at least once a year, right?!?! With hair and make-up done, my look was almost complete all that was left was the dress!!!
And a fabulous dress it was! I even had sparkly silver heels to match. I rushed over to pick up my date and he and his roommate were moving two ginormous desks up three flights of stairs into the apartment. I helped do the heavy lifting in heels and my princess dress.
That night was full of joy, friends, good food, cocktails, and dancing. On our way home we took a cab downtown and managed to fit in a couple of dances at Jakes and a game of pool at the Eastside Bar. It was definitely a night to remember!!!
A year later, he is the man of my dreams and we go on grand adventures. I switched jobs and gyms so there was no zumba Christmas dance party this morning and tonight there will be no work Christmas party, but I did take a Mixxedfit class at my new gym this morning followed by a workout and a swim. And tonight he is coming home!!! I am studying hard in school and learning so much everyday.
A lot has changed in this past year. I had my struggles and challenges, but my victories has been glorious and I feel so blessed to be exactly where I am right here and now.
Describe your perfect day. What made it special?
Peace, Love, and Blessings Always,
